I had lunch there just today with a friend. The Yellow Curry with Calamari Lunch Special. $12. with a drink that never went empty. They are very good to their customers. The range on how spicy your food is, varies between 1 to 10. I highly recommend you stick with 5. The food is flavorful and ample. I have eaten... More

This is a very small but friendly restaurant that serves the standards and then some specialties. Get adventurous, but be careful because when they say spicy, it is spicy. Staff changes too much, but the food is consistent and very tasty.

& great varied menu too, not a down side to this place. Pat See You highly suggested. ANd just like everyone else mentions, friendly service - not a rough edge to our waitress.

This is a gr8 place anytime, for dine-in, outdoor seating or carry-out. They serve all afternoon so it's perfect for a late lunch or early dinner. They offer many specials and will add or omit ingredients and make it as hot/spicy as you wish. The lemongrass soup is delicious and everything is flavorful and fresh.

The four of us all enjoyed our lunch specials, which were a good value. They included soup and a hand roll or egg roll. The egg roll is more like a spring roll. The soup and spicy basil noodles were excellent. I would definitely go here again.

When we try other Thai restaruants in the area, we always ask ourselves if it was as good as Thai Pan. Always the answer is , "No". Service is quick, the menu has good variety, and the prices are reasonable. At lunch or dinner, the place is full and there is a steady stream of take out orders. That says... More

I usually go here for lunch and find it to be a terrific value. They are quick and the food is super tasty. I finally went there with a bunch of friends for dinner and was equally as satisfied if not even more. The place is small but I have never had to wait for a table. I have taken... More

Our 5 and 6 year love it too.. this is where they choose to go when we say you can go anywhere (birthday, first day of school, etc...). Our usually is Pad See Noodles with chicken, red curry tofu and... More

If you like fresh wide rice noodles, seered with fresh veggies, a tasty sauce and fresh basil...this is your place. This dish may also go by Drunken Noodles at other Thai restaurants. Either way, I have tried this dish in other Thai places and TaiPan always wins.
